Dental and Oral Health (Children)
13 months old with a cavity
my 13 month old has a black spot on his inner bottom front tooth. Is this normal for a child of this age? Or did I do something wrong?
Thanks for the question. The black spot could be anything from staining (from food or trauma), or a cavity. It is best to have a dentist look at it and assess if any treatment is needed. Hope that helps.
